Fish and Wildlife Grant Supports Nonlethal Methods of Protecting Wolves and Livestock

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will award more than a quarter-million dollars to Arizona and New Mexico wildlife agencies. The grant is designed to develop nonlethal methods of protection of Mexican gray wolves and livestock…The Wolf Livestock Demonstration Project will allow ranchers to monitor wolf movements with radio telemetry equipment. Electric fences will be used to keep the endangered gray wolves and other predators away from cattle, sheep and other herds. And carcasses will be used to divert wolves away from livestock. The grant also includes forty thousand dollars to compensate ranchers for confirmed livestock kills.
